On the 30th of November 2023 Prof. Ilze Bot organized an event at the Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research (LACDR) (Leiden University, The Netherlands) inviting the representatives of Harteraad (Dutch patient organization) which represents the interests of about 1.7 million people with cardiovascular disease.

The event included a site visit, presentations, and lab tour. Besides Prof. Ilze Bot, Assoc. Profs. Amanda Foks and Bram Slütter actively participated in the meeting and presented their research.

The title of the presentation introducing the B-specific project was ‘Het verouderde afweersysteem in slagaderverkalking: een nieuwe biomarker of behandeling?’ (English translation: The aged immune system in atherosclerosis: a new biomarker or treatment?)
